Cisco today announced the launch of a Webex video conferencing app designed for the Apple Vision Pro. The app is designed to provide an immersive meeting experience that fills the space around the user.

The Webex app supports Personas, allowing Vision Pro wearers to have a visual representation of themselves in video calls while wearing the headset, and it also works with spatial audio.


Webex for Apple Vision Pro takes full advantage of the powerful capabilities built natively into visionOS. After joining a Webex meeting, you can arrange individual participant videos and a separate shared content window that scale to life-size with intuitive pinch and drag gestures. You can use the infinite canvas of Apple Vision Pro to resize and re-arrange these windows, enabling you to collaborate without being bound by a fixed screen. Your persona is a dynamic, natural representation of your face and hand movements that allows others to see you in Webex while you're wearing Apple Vision Pro. With these flexible layouts, multitasking has never been better.
Webex features such as AI background noise removal, real-time translations, closed captions, and live polling are integrated into the app. Meetings can be transferred between the Vision Pro and the Mac or the iPhone by opening up the Webex app and tapping the join button.

Webex can be downloaded from the App Store on Apple Vision Pro.

I’ve been using it. It’s solid, but hoping they add messaging. You can’t even do messages from the web app and it’s crucial.

I would certainly not do a persona in a meeting yet. Too distracting. But chat would be great.

And again, no other participant is wearing AVP and no personas in these demos & marketing materials.
The “Simpsons” is truly a Vision-ary series. The world’s most clairvoyant cartoon has done it again. This time the Matt Groening-created animated comedy has been credited with forecasting the rise of the Vision Pro, Apple’s much-hyped virtual reality headset that is currently blowing up the tech sphere.

"I’m here live. I’m not a cat."
In certain circles, just joining a meeting with a virtual background is considered inappropriate. Can just imagine what personas will do.

Why they heck didn't they just go with Memojis?!?! Those would be a fun alternative to the "camera off" state in most video conferences. The personas are creepy and will never be accepted. Memojis are whimsical enough to be enjoyed without needing the creep factor.

So if wearing one and joining a camera-on video, do others see a Memoji of you?

It's a kind of silly. Other people can't see your eyes or real person with Vision Pro during webex meeting. So what's the point of that?
I swear the app is for the C-Level people that rarely have their cameras on in the first place ;) .

Honestly in 100% agreement with your viewpoint.

For the love of God, can we please not have endless 'XXXX app now available for apple vision pro' posts on macrumors?

Yes, developers are going to release apps for it, but EVERY iPad OS app is available on AVP unless the developers specifically opted out.

The only app that most people will actually care about is Netflix, and they're not going to waste their time with it until there are millions of units not just sold, but in active use. Companies like Netflix will not make a single additional dollar in revenue from making a dedicated AVP app. People will subscribe to Netflix regardless. It's just an added cost for them and every other company.

This is the real Achilles Heel for the AVP. It's a computer monitor, not a computer and so it is primarily a media consumption device, not a productivity device. Media companies obtain $0 in additional revenue or profit from supporting and maintaining dedicated apps for a product that most people can't afford and will never buy.
